Castleknock Hotel


Day 1

Ø  Arrive to the hotel, check in and get ready to explore. Enjoy the look of excitement on your little one’s faces when they spot their surprise welcome bags on their beds! 

Ø  Get ready for a dip in the swimming pool! Swim hats at the ready (included in the children’s welcome bags) make your way to Tonic Health Club for a ‘splashing’ time! 

Ø  Before the sun sets…. spend some time in our on-site children’s playground. Adjacent to The Patio, our heated terrace, it is the perfect spot to relax and unwind while you tire your little ones out before dinner.

Ø  Time to get dressed up and ready for dinner! Full children’s menu available. Pre-booking is highly recommended to ensure your preferred dining time is secured. 

Ø  Let’s put the kids down for an early night while we open a bottle of wine* and relax for the night ahead of a busy day of activities. 

*Bottle of wine in room on arrival included in Family Fun Package*


Day 2


Ø  Start your day with breakfast. Choose from a selection of cold meats, cheese, yoghurts and fresh fruit on our buffet or head straight for the tasty hot buffet featuring the full complement of an Irish breakfast. Your little ones will be thrilled with an extra special breakfast surprise… pancakes! We like ours with Nutella. 

Ø Let’s hit the road!  If you don’t fancy driving far you’re in luck as Fort Lucan Adventureland is only a 10 minute drive away. Set within a huge wooden Viking Fort, the centre provides hours of outdoor fun for children aged between 2 and 12 years old.  Afterwards take a spin into Lucan village, get a 99 ice cream and stroll down to Lucan Weir or into Lucan Demesne to check out the fairy trail!

Ø  End your action packed day… with a “Movie Night In.” We will provide the cookies and milk to make it the real deal! Connect your Netflix account to your TV and we will provide the sweet treats. *

*Cookies and milk available to book as a room extra
